Crazy week of Week Eight action with one game to go tonight with the Saints and Falcons. But here are some great things from the week that was:

•Brett Favre returns to boos at Lambeau and rolls with four TDs.

•Rams and Titans pick up their first wins of the season.

Panthers beat a decent team on the road in the Cards and commit zero turnovers in the process.

•Denver is no longer undefeated after being crushed by Baltimore.

•Houston goes to 5-3 after win over Buffalo for best start in franchise history through eight games.

Philadelphia steamrolls the G-men, putting up 30 first-half points...better than the Phils did in the WS Game Four.

•Cowboys could be a contender in the NFC East after dismantling the Seahawks.

On tap tonight: The Atlanta Falcons visit New Orleans for a NFC South Monday Night Showdown. The Saints sit undefeated at 6-0, while the Falcons are 4-2.
